Share

Welcome back to our thirty fourth post in our new section Tickle Your Fancy. Tickle Your Fancy’ includes a round-up of five links to articles from around the internet that have specifically interested us during the course of the week. Ones that we feel are relevant to your interest in photography and art.

Just to explain the title for this section Tickle Your Fancyis an English idiom and essentially means that something appeals to you and perhaps stimulates your imagination in an enthusiastic way, we felt it would make a great title for this new section of the site.

We hope you enjoy this weeks’ selections, we have have focused on Instagram’s Community Project series’ this week and curated a few images from each of the five chosen hashtags representing poignant events and anniversaries in the world.

Hope you enjoy this, a little different to the norm…

#chernobyl Remembering Chernobyl (Чорнобиль) – On this day 28 years ago, a catastrophic nuclear accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine resulted in a huge plume of radioactive contamination and the relocation of more than 350,000 people.

Ghana sculptor El Anatsui finds inspiration in the waste caused by modern consumption. He creates colorful wall sculptures out of discarded aluminum bottle caps, seals and labels produced by local distilleries in Nigeria, where he’s lived for most of his career.

El Anatsui’s current exhibit, Gravity and Grace, features twelve monumental sculptures on show at Miami’s Bass Museum of Art (@bassmuseumofart).
